Conference Call on the UPS Contract

May 6, 2013: Teamsters for a Democratic Union will host a Conference Call for UPS Teamsters to review the proposed UPS contract on Thursday, May 9.

UPS Teamsters have been kept in the dark for months by an information brownout.

On Tuesday, TDU will obtain and post the tentative national agreement. On Thursday, UPS Teamsters and shop stewards will meet on a national conference call to discuss the proposed contract.

UPS Teamsters and shop stewards will report on contract changes on key issues, including: pension, healthcare and retiree healthcare, production harassment, excessive overtime, technology, full-time jobs, subcontracting and more.

We'll review contract highlights and lowlights on the call and take questions and comments from Teamsters. Keep your eyes open as well for upcoming Make UPS Deliver bulletins with contract updates and analysis.

UPS Teamsters will get to vote on the national contract and their supplement (and in some cases a third vote on their local rider).

The TDU Conference Call on the proposed UPS Contract will take place on Thursday, May 9 at 9:30 p.m. Eastern Time.

You will need a Conference Call code to dial in to the call. Space is limited.

Time to Meet with Congressional Reps

Teamster pension activists from the Twin Cities met recently with Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN). They reported having a very fruitful discussion. "It was heartening to hear how informed our Congressman was on the issues," said Bob McNattin a retiree from Teamsters Local 120. "Ellison knows how hard we organized to get Treasury to reject the Central States cuts, but he also knows we still need real solutions and legislation to protect our retirement security." The delegation left the meeting confident that the Congressman would remain an important ally going forward. These Minnesota Teamsters encourage other committees or pension activists to meet with their Senators and Representatives or their staffs. We need to keep growing support and visibility in this election year.
